Nasmyth Group has appointed Tony Upton as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Tony has held several senior executive roles within the aerospace and defence industry, and most recently was the CEO of Gardner Aerospace, having previously been CFO since 2018. Prior to this Tony held financial and operational roles at Eaton, UTC Aerospace Systems and Goodrich.

Tony’s extensive experience in the sector will be key to the next phase of Nasmyth’s development, as the Group continues to plot a path to growth in its recovering end markets.

Ash Reek, Rcapital, said: “The Board believes that Tony is the right leader to take Nasmyth Group forward as we look for growth opportunities across our portfolio of precision engineering and metal treatment businesses.”

“I am honoured that the Nasmyth Board have placed their trust in me in this incredibly exciting new chapter in the company’s growth journey,” said Tony.
